Never Enough Wool

NEWSLETTER

November 2014

November.  Already.  We would like to know who stole October.  And if we aren’t careful, November will be over and that only leaves December until the new year.  And speaking of the new year, are you planning any resolutions for 2015?  We haven’t decided totally, but we are contemplating something involving a map and mileage markers. 

So what’s new at the wool shop?  We have some lovely project books and project bags.  Ball winders and swifts.  Sock yarn from Lang.  Last but not least, we are publishing a 2015 calendar.  Look for its arrival the week of November 10!  12 original patterns, and not a one of them a scarf!

Remember that December is our “catch your breath” month here at the shop.  We won’t be starting any new classes, and those dedicated class times will become “open knitting” times.  The kettle is on, sometimes there are goodies, and most of all – peace and quiet, without your children, pets, husbands, laundry, housework, dishes … You get the idea.

Looking towards the new year finds us contemplating a class line-up going forward.  We have requests for entrelac, fair isle, fisherman knits … We are always open to suggestions, so don’t be shy.


Classes:

We attempt to keep our class fees at the lowest possible rates.  In order to do so, we ask that our students purchase their supplies here at the shop.  In addition, we offer class discounts to our students.  Please note that if you are not able to finish your project in the allotted time, you are welcome to continue attending the lesson times until you are finished.  

You must register for your class before class time.  Class times are generally Tuesday afternoon from 1-3:00 pm and Tuesday evening 7-9:00 pm.  Other times may be arranged to suit, but we will strive to hold classes primarily on Tuesdays.   Drop-in knitters are always welcome, space allowing.  

Linen Stitch CowlNovember – As the holiday gift-giving season closes in, our thoughts turn to projects which can be completed quickly but still look intricate and difficult.  This Linen Stitch Cowl is the answer – you could even make one for yourself if you so desired!  There’s plenty of time.  Classes will be held on Tuesdays, beginning November 4, from 1-3:00 pm or 7-9:00 pm.  Cost:  $25 plus materials.

Building in Color – Michelle Hunter has done it again!  An afghan worked in multi-coloured techniques to expand your knitting horizons.   This class will be meeting once a month, beginning January 9, 2015, at 10:30 am.  The plan will be to meet and start the panel in question and then for homework, finish the panel to be ready for the next month.  There are ten colour panels, a class to discuss seaming, and another class to discuss the borders.  Cost is $25, plus materials and book. 
Fisherman Knit Vest – as seen in Knitting Traditions Spring 2014.  We will be casting on in January, 2015, and working until complete.  Barb and Carol have started the samples, and are totally entranced.  Cost is $25.00 plus materials (400g aran or worsted weight –Aran with Wool works fabulously!).  We anticipate that this project will take approximately 6-8 weeks to complete. 

Entrelac Scarf – Learn entrelac by making a beautiful scarf.  Knit in tiers, the scarf looks as though woven.  Using a long-colour repeat yarn, your scarf will be the envy of your friends.  Class begins Tuesday, February 3, at either 1:00 or 7:00 pm, and continuing through the month of February.  Cost:  $25.00 plus materials (approx. 200g wool and needles).

Continuing Events:

Sit ‘n Stitch:  Every Wednesday afternoon, from 1 until 3.  Bring your latest project and join us for some stitching, questions answered, tea, and lots of laughter.  Everyone is welcome!  

Saturday Stitching:  Every Saturday, from 2 until 4.  What better way to spend a Saturday afternoon than with friends both new and old, some handwork, and some tea?  

Knitting Night:  Every Thursday, from 7 until 9.  Although it’s called Knitting Night, crocheters are encouraged and welcomed.  There is plenty of friendship, tea, and yummy goodies for all.
